Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Lawrence was reportedly spotted having a blazing row with the director of her next film 'Joy'.
According to a source, the 24-year-old and O'Russell were loudly screaming and swearing at each other on the set of the movie in Boston Tuesday, reports tmz.com.
The argument is said to have begun because Lawrence was unhappy with how O'Russell was directing a scene. However, a representative for Fox 2000 studio, said the screaming was just method acting.
The studio, which is producing the film claimed that O'Russell was helping Lawrence to get riled up before she shot a scene in which she had to shout at another actor.
'Joy' is O'Russell and Lawrence's third film together. The duo has previously worked in 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'American Hustle'.
'Joy' is based on the life of inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano (played by Lawrence), a struggling single mother who achieved great success after creating the Miracle Mop.
The movie, which will also star actor Bradley Cooper -- Lawrence's co-star in 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'American Hustle', is currently scheduled for release Dec 25.
